Hey, I'm new to the Gluten Free living style. Recently I feel like I've been feeling like I need to get sick. So I was just wondering if anyone else feels like they are going to get sick/gag? Thanks for your help!

How long have you been on the diet? What are you eating? Do you keep a food diary (this helps keep track of what you eat in case there is something causing you issues)?

For a long while I used to get that sick feeling with any trace of cc. Then I used to get it when taking my supplements before bed. You know, the sweating feeling, the gagging, retching, too much saliva stuff. It seems to have gone away now.

Shadowicewolf I've probably been on the diet for 4 months now. I'm trying to eat a lot of meat and a lot of fresh fruits and veggies.

Mushroom. Thanks for the help

You're meat might be whats causing you to have those symptoms. I know it took me FOREVER to finally find chicken that would not make me sick.

As time goes by, you will find out what your sensitivity to gluten really is. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm. Most celiacs can tolerate that amount. Some can not. They go totally non packaged food. Be patient in healing.

Reba, what kind of music do you like? and welcome to the forum.

. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm.

In the US, there is no legal meaning for "Gluten Free". It can mean no gluten ingredients. It can mean the company tests for gluten. Some use tests as low as 5ppm. You would need to check the company's website or email or call them to find out for certain.

Even if a product is tested with a 20 ppm test, testing negative does not mean it has 19 ppm. It just means it has less than 20 ppm. It could have 0 or 2 ppm.

Thanks for expanding the meaning.

So, make sure you are getting your daily carbs in there as well.  If your carb intake gets too low, your body will let you know it.  I accidentally did this when I first went gluten-free and I felt very off and anxious.  No need to camp out on carbs but if you're having breakfast--a slice of gluten-free toast, with lunch try some "Nut-Thins" chips, and it may just help.

 

Your diagnosis is enough to make you feel sick by itself!  It's a lot to digest.  Take a deep breath, get that balanced gluten-free diet in, take it a day at a time and the habit will form before you know it and it will all become second hand...

 

As for alternative music...  I can't say much because thats what I listen too.  ALT Nation on Sirius rocks.

I know what you mean. I've been gluten free for a month now and I'm still having lots of acid/burps/nausea. Hoping that will go away with time. Interesting about the carbs too...I may try to add more to my diet and see what happens.

I love country by the way :)

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
